by IANS |

 July 1 (IANS) Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on Monday said that his X social media platform has become a group chat for Earth, with maximum traffic coming from all over the world. X now has 600 million monthly active users (MAUs) globally. “X is the group chat for Earth,” Musk posted. A user commented that “X is a global town square for the people”. “New X feature inbound… Earth Chat,” another posted. The tech billionaire, who acquired X (then called Twitter) in 2022 for $44 billion, is aiming to make it an “everything app” where people can post movies and TV shows and also make digital payments. Musk also claimed that X usage in the US has reached an all-time high. “Around 76 billion total user-seconds in the US, beating the previous record by 5 per cent,” the X owner announced. In March, X reported that users are spending 30 minutes per day on the platform on average. When Twitter was acquired by Musk in October 2022, it was basically a 140-character messaging app. At the time of its $44 billion acquisition, there were about 3,500 creators on the platform. --IANS na/dpb
